Branding Cattle

This is another great picture from the Texas Panhandle in 1904. The picture shows a group of cowboys branding cattle on the open range. You can see that the cowboy on the horse ropes a calf by the back legs, pulls him down, and then cowboys on the ground hold him down while the guy comes around with the hot brand to brand them. A beautiful picture from a bygone era.


  1. Still have the "brandings" here in WY.

  2. Either the guy roping the calves is real fast, or the branders are real slow.
